In one frenzied season, a book title has become imprinted in the consciousness of American sports fans. The Curse of the Bambino, a phrase Dan Shaughnessy has coined, will live in infamy for Red Sox fans because it summs up 70 years of horror and heartbreak which all began when Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees. With old-fashioned New England humor and the authority of a lifelong Red Sox fan, Dan Shaughnessy captures all the joys and heartbreaks that the curse of the Bambino has brought to Boston.

About the Author:

Dan Shaughnessy is a sports columnist for the Boston Globe.

From AudioFile:

Ken Coleman's expertise as a baseball announcer enriches this history of the Boston Red Sox since the sale of Babe Ruth to the N.Y. Yankees. He leads off with a grim account of this transaction, which started the curse that has plagued the Red Sox ever since. The sermon-like tone will amuse non-believers and comfort listeners who are certain the team is cursed. Like the ups and downs of Boston's play through the years, the narrator's voice fluctuates--exuberant and then despondent--in tone and tempo accurately reflecting the mood of any given baseball season. The narrator is very successful at conveying the emotional roller coaster ride Red Sox fans have endured as a result of the curse of the Bambino. M.P.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
